7 Benefits of Morning Exercise

 

 

 

 

Exercising before eating may have fat burning advantages for some:

It’s an ongoing debate within the world of fitness: should you eat breakfast before exercising in the morning, and are there any benefits to working out on an empty stomach?

Like with most questions about exercise, the all-encompassing answer to this question is that it depends.

 

  • Study: Men who exercised before eating burned up to 8% more fat
  • But women burned 22% more fat if they exercised after eating a meal
  • This is because men are muscly and carbohydrates is their preferred fuel
  • Women's bodies are programmed to burn fat to conserve carbohydrate 

 

 

  

1. Habit Forming

Everyone has a morning routine. You may push the snooze button on the alarm clock three times before finally getting up, or jump out of bed and head toward the coffee pot. Some people may shower before breakfast or their habit is to shower after they eat. Your routines become part of your nature. Exercise can become part of your morning routine and one of the most healthy habits you can develop. Those who exercise midday or after work may find that occasionally they are dissuaded from exercising due to unforeseen events. Working late or heavy traffic after work might make you late for your session at the gym, so you decide to skip exercising. Exercising in the morning eliminates the excuses for not exercising. Set your alarm for 30 minutes earlier than you normally wake and walk for 20 minutes before breakfast every day. If walking is not possible, do some stretching and body-weight exercises in your bedroom before you have breakfast. Make morning exercise part of your daily routine, and soon morning exercise becomes a healthy habit.

 

 

 

2. Improved Sleep

Exercising early in the morning may lead to better sleep at night. Researchers at Appalachian State University found that in a small sample of test subjects, those engaged in aerobic exercise for 30 minutes in the morning experienced significantly better sleep compared to those who exercised mid-day or in the evening. The participants in the study who exercised in the morning worked out on a treadmill at 7 a.m. The morning exercisers benefited by spending more time the following night in deep sleep.

 

 

3. Heart Healthy

If you have a family history of heart disease, then physical active can improve your chance of living a long and healthy life. Thus, use exercise as a source of motivation to reduce the risk of heart disease.

 

 

4. Improves Hood

5. Keeps Bone Healthy

Regular exercise promotes bone formation and may prevent many forms of bone loss diseases like osteoporosis and arthritis. Your bones are continuously changing — new bone is made and old bone is broken down. When you're young, your body makes new bone faster than it breaks down old bone, and your bone mass increases. Most people reach their peak bone mass around age 30. After that, bone remodeling continues, but you lose slightly more bone mass than you gain.

 

6. Boosts Mental Health

Exercising regularly for 30-45 minutes daily has great effects on the health of your brain. It also helps to improve mood. Exercises also helps in the creation of new neurons, due to this it keeps mental disorders like Alzheimer's or Parkinson's at bay.
